TESOL Trainers' Summer SIOP Institute 2023

SIOP (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) is a K12 framework that can support educators in planning, teaching, and reflecting on their lessons.  It was originally designed to help educators support English learners though the creators discovered the positive impact it had on all learners. Participants who attend this remote training session walk away being able to implement SIOP strategies and techniques that set all students up for success.
